  • Nordsind - Lys

    13 Feb 2021 - Pat O'

    On a wet and dreary winters evening, one of life’s little pleasures is chilling out with a bottle or two of ice-cold beer and passing a few hours wandering through the vast euphonic wilderness that is Bandcamp. I tend to get lost in it every couple of months, and when I do, there’s a great sense of triumph and gratification when I unearth a band whose sound instantly clicks and has something unique about them. Back in 2017, I came across Denmark’s Nordsind, and their EP Efterar.

How about taking a mixture of darkjazz, then mixing in a pinch of metal vocals and finishing it off with a healthy handful of middle eastern spice?

    07 Feb 2021 - Pat O'
    Post-Rock / Ambient

    France is said to be the birthplace of cinema with it’s innovative style and flair and it’s fearless approach with experimentation. So it’s not surprising that bands like Flyingdeadman, Lost In Kiev and Oak for example, are artisans at seamlessly integrating film into their own craft. It’s a signature sound and style for a lot of bands in the “post rock” genre, but some bands are simply better than others when it comes to effortlessly blending the two art forms.
